THE YEAR OF THE HARE
A Human comedy
Freely based on the novel by Arto Paasilinna
Written by Esa Leskinen, Sami Keski-Vähälä and Kristian Smeds
Adapted by Catherine Grosvenor from the English translation by Nely Keinänen
Directed by Aleksis Meaney
Cast: David McKay, Kim Allan, Martin Docherty, Sarah McCardie
Vatanen (David McKay) is middle-aged, middle-class and works 12-hour days in his office cubicle the highlights of his life long passed. However, a chance encounter with an eccentric Hare (Kim Allan) re-awakens his lust for life and suddenly Vatanen finds himself – along with his new-found traveling companion – on an epic and surreal road trip through a world with rules and values he can no longer accept or understand. During the companions' journey the lines between reality, dreams and insanity begin to become blurred. But even this does not deter our industrious pair! The quest to find some kind of meaning in life and existence has begun!
Warning! Serious mayhem is unavoidable, so strap on your bunny ears and kiss reality goodbye, because it's gonna be a wild ride. However, there's no need to panic if you have lost your bunny ears. We can promise you will find them by end of the show...
The Year of The Hare – A Human comedy is an anarchic and riotous but ultimately touching comedy about human beings and other animals living together in a rapidly changing world with more and more problems but seemingly fewer and fewer solutions.
